When you apply for a driving school and a license they will tell you that having a driver’s license is a privilege. A driver’s license is a valid government ID that allows you to drive cars anywhere in the country. Being a holder of a license includes a lot of responsibilities, that’s why it takes at least a day to apply for one. The process of applying requires both a written and a practical test, fail either of the two and you won’t be granted a license. A video of a woman whose car got clamped due to illegal parking recently went viral on social media. A netizen, Franceska Ravela, was able to capture a video of a woman who was hysterical after seeing her vehicle get clamped.
In Annapolis, Greenhills, San Juan City, a woman identified as Celeste Astovesa was caught getting out of control. Apparently, Celeste illegally parked in front of a bank along the Mabuhay Lane. According to Rudy Ladisla, Greenhills’ clamping personnel, Celeste was asked by the guard to not park along the Mabuhay Lane, but she dismissed it and went ahead.
When Celeste got back from the bank, she lost control after seeing that her vehicle was already clamped. Rudy Ladisla said:
“Galit kasi nalaman niya na kinlamp ang kotse niya. Nagwala sa galit… Pinagmumura ako, binato pa ako ng barya, pinagtatadyakan… Dumura pa sa kasama ko.”
In violent reaction, Celeste blocked the road and continued being hysterical. At one point, she even sat down in the middle of the road screaming at the personnel to remove the clamp. The video was also able to record Celeste repeatedly hitting Rudy.
Eventually, Celeste’s brother came, who was wearing his military uniform. But even her brother couldn’t stop her and she began hitting the barangay personnel again. According to the barangay, Celeste’s brother was from the Armed Forces of the Philippines and a member of the Presidential Security Group. He is identified as Major Alejandro Astoveza.
Celeste could not be stopped so they had no other choice but to involve the police and people from Women and Children’s Desk. After an hour, Celeste finally calmed down and got her car back. However, authorities stated that she cannot get away with what happened. They are charging her for alarm and scandal and physical injuries.
